The nation's top "Obamacare" insurance agent, Robert Welk, has authored Maximizing Obamacare to help you finally understand exactly what you need to do to avoid the vast majority of problems people experienced during open enrollment. The need for this audiobook is underscored by a recent revelation from the federal government that almost one-fourth of those enrolled have incorrectly reported their income. The government is so concerned they have hired a third party to find those enrollees so that the situation can be corrected immediately! If you would like to minimize the stress of the last open enrollment, understand how to maximize the subsidies retroactively, and avoid having to pay back large amounts of money, then this is the step-by-step explanation you have been looking for. Unlike most audiobooks on the subject, this audiobook is written for the consumer as a user's guide. Robert Welk is someone who has had so much success in helping clients overcome the challenges and maximize the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, that he was recognized in a televised award ceremony with the state's governor and one of the authors of the legislation. Do yourself a favor and put the philosophical and partisan arguments aside for a moment, so that you can begin to understand how to make the mechanics of this complex law work in your favor. 1.

The student loans, just like the other forms of financial aid, are a service that is subject for repayment. However, although aware of such fact, many borrowers still fall to the trap of walking away from student loan debt which then results in a series of consequences. They tend to ignore their being summoned to enter repayment usually either 90 or 120 days after separating from school or after dropping below half-time enrollment. With this, the loans remain delinquent for 270 days or become 270 days past due at any time, leading the loans to "default" status. This book will help show students how to prevent loan default 1.

Many terms were bestowed upon the mysterious Fritz Duquesne throughout his colorful life, but perhaps the most fitting ever attributed to him was: "the most dangerous prisoner to have ever lived."But before this Boer warrior-turned-spy reached the heights of infamy that awarded him such acclaim, Fritz Joubert Duquesne lived a life of adventure that many people wouldn’t experience in a hundred lifetimes. From a young age, Fritz harboured a burning resentment toward the British army, stemming from the brutal treatment suffered by his family during the Anglo-Boer wars.Fritz vowed revenge against the nation that took from him those he held dear, leading to his own enrollment in the military of whichever side fought opposite the British forces.Through complex prison escapes, destructive acts of sabotage, and heroic feats that are even too far-fetched for fiction, Fritz Duquesne exacted revenge in the most daring, unbelievable, and all-round theatrical manner possible.His life crossed oceans and continents, assuming multiple aliases and personas along the way. Eventually, Fritz Duquesne found himself a crucial cog in the Nazi machine, ultimately being responsible for the largest spy ring ever uncovered in the United States. 1. Language: English.

Coming of Age in the Other America shows that despite overwhelming odds, some disadvantaged urban youth do achieve upward mobility. Drawing from 10 years of fieldwork with parents and children who resided in Baltimore public housing, sociologists Stefanie DeLuca, Susan Clampet-Lundquist, and Kathryn Edin highlight the remarkable resiliency of some of the youth who hailed from the nation's poorest neighborhoods and show how the right public policies might help break the cycle of disadvantage. Coming of Age in the Other America illuminates the profound effects of neighborhoods on impoverished families. The authors conducted in-depth interviews and fieldwork with 150 young adults, and found that those who had been able to move to better neighborhoods - either as part of the Moving to Opportunity program or by other means - achieved much higher rates of high school completion and college enrollment than their parents. About half the youth surveyed reported being motivated by an "identity project" - or a strong passion such as music, art, or a dream job - to finish school and build a career. Coming of Age in the Other America presents a sensitive, nuanced account of how a generation of ambitious but underprivileged young Baltimoreans has struggled to succeed. It both challenges long-held myths about inner-city youth and shows how the process of "social reproduction" - where children end up stuck in the same place as their parents-is far from inevitable. The book is published by the Russell Sage Foundation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nancy Peterson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/086578/bk_acx0_086578_sample.mp3.

In this coming-of-age debut audiobook from Tyler James Smith, a 17-year-old boy has one week in the aftermath of a disastrous prank to prove to the authorities, and to himself, that he’s not a worthless jerk who belongs in jail. Moses and his cousin Charlie were best friends, wisecracking pranksters, unstoppable forces of teenage energy - until the night they became accidental arsonists and set in motion a chain of events that left Moses alone, guilt-stricken, and most likely trapped in his dead-end town. Then Moses gets a lucky break: the chance to volunteer as a camp counselor for a week and prove the incident at the bowling alley should be expunged from his record. And since a criminal record and enrollment at Duke are mutually exclusive, he’s determined to get through his community service and get on with his life. But tragedy seems to follow him wherever he goes, and this time, it might just stop him in his tracks. “When people say reading makes us more empathetic, they are talking about books like Unstoppable Moses by Tyler James Smith. A lyrical, hilarious, so-real-it-hurts debut that reminds us all just how much we have to lose, and why it’s important to never give up. I’m so happy this book is in the world.” (Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, Morris Honor-winning author of The Smell of Other People’s Houses) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Halstead.
